RE: Millisecond timer in PL/SQL

It does the same as:

Select HSECS from v$timer;

Also, I don't understand, how milliseconds is "more granular" than
HSECS?

Scott,

How about:

select dbms_utility.get_time from dual?



  function get_time return number;
  --  Find out the current time in 100th's of a second.
  --  Output argukments:
  --    get_time
  --      The time is the number of 100th's of a second from some
  --      arbitrary epoch.

All,

I'm looking for a way to measure the elapsed time (in milliseconds) of
executing a bunch of functions within a PL/SQL package.  I've written a
"timer" 
function that records this by using SYSTIMESTAMP, however is causes the
sessions to spend a significant amount of time waiting on "cache buffers

chains".

Coding "w_date := SYSTIMESTAMP;" will result in a recursive "SELECT
SYSTIMESTAMP FROM DUAL", and this is the sql being executed by sessions
waiting on this latch (from v$session_wait and v$sqlarea).

Does anyone have suggestions for ways that I can improve this?

I have 50 concurrent sessions (batch jobs) running this, and each will
call the "timer" function about 60 times per second.  Originally I used
V$TIMER, however the HSECS from this was not granular enough.

Thanks,
